We are thankful and thrilled to welcome Stephen Jurgella! He is the Founder and CEO of Fountain Forward, a Houston-based firm he founded 8 years ago that brings a different perspective to marketing and advertising. Stephen and his team are all about the “Why” and how they can bring solid outcomes to their customers. Fountain Forward is completely built from customer referrals. A self-taught marketing professional, Stephen has worked with B2C and B2B clients for more than a decade, crafting strategies that connect with customers and help them tell their stories in a compelling, and engaging way. He is also a Co-Founder of Boat Count Investments, a Real Estate investment company with commercial properties in Wisconsin. Personally, Stephen is very active in sports and plays hockey every week. Mental health awareness is a close personal cause having recently been named a #SameHereHero for sharing his personal experience with bi-polar disorder and suicide. Recently married, Stephen enjoys spending time with his wife and Great Dane, Waldo. Stephen and Taryn have recently launched Movement by Taryn, a concierge Physical Therapy service (Taryn is an amazing PT). Enjoy!
